#DF13 Social Recap of Day 4 at Dreamforce

Thursday was much quieter day at #DF13 than I was expecting, with the expo halls closing early and sessions ending in the afternoon, but there were still 15,004 tweets!

The top 4 most mentioned Twitter names should come as no surprise, but @SherylSandberg rounding out the top 5 was a bit interesting. Looks like the women attending #DF13 enjoyed the #LeanIn circles on Thursday morning and people continued to retweet quotes from her fireside chat from Wednesday, mentioning her on Twitter 241 times.

Dreamforce is slowly coming to an end, and what an amazing three days it has been! Wednesday brought us 29,193 #DF13 tweets which is slightly lower than the 41,000 tweets from Tuesday, but still higher than the 24,000 tweets we analyzed on Monday.

During the keynote on Tuesday, Marc Benioff confirmed the attendance of Dreamforce this year was 135,000 people. On Tuesday, Salesforce also live streamed the keynote sessions to an additional 10,000+ people, which in total is an increase of 55,000 people over last year! The live stream included all of the keynote presentations with Marc Benioff in the morning and Marissa Mayer in the evening. While day 1 saw an impressive 24,922 #DF13 tweets, day 2 produced even more of a reaction from attendees with over 41,000 tweets!

Since there were only 90,000 attendees at Dreamforce last year, I was curious how #DF13 compared to #DF12, so I compared the two using Topsy.com. During the month of September in 2012 the #DF12 hashtag was used a total of 116,212 times with the peak day being Wednesday, September 18 with 31,181 tweets. So far #DF13 has already seen 92,513 tweets in November with yesterday being the biggest day with 41,887 tweets.

Data entry would be reduced and reports would be more robust. The result would be a more efficient use of time, enhanced measurement of outcomes and better communication between staff. What’s not to like? But it begs the question…how do you do it?

Before we delve into that question, you need to first understand the fundamentals of integration. This will help you explain the process to decision makers and influencers as you conduct your due diligence and figure out the costs involved. Integration is much like building a bridge over a river. Each side of the river represents your disparate databases. For example, let’s say you wish to have record of all QuickBooks invoices under the respective account record in Salesforce. The result would be a bird’s-eye view of your constituents from invoicing to donations. You would need to build a bridge for the two databases to communicate.
